Ive just reinstalled foxytunes in firefox and i cant get foxytunes to move to the far left of the status bar like i used to.
i try drag it and nothing happens, i can only get it to move to the top bar and then i cant get it back onto the status bar without resetting its values in about:config. this makes me think something is wrong. any ideas

Are you opening the customize window from FF itself ? If so it should let you move it pretty much anywhere you want it. From the tool bar at top of FF right click and see customize-window, then you can grab Foxy icon and drag where you want it. If not reply and will try to help more.

Righty managed to get it to the far left position. by taking the firefox foxytunes about:config entries from an installation on my laptop which has the foxytunes bar where i want it.

I had to enter / create these manually however, which leads me to believe that there has either been a version / OS (laptop vista, dt Win7) change somewhere along the line and its not implementing them correctly and this is why i couldn't do so via drag and drop.

The position string names and their values (remove quotes):

"foxytunes.parent_element_id" "status-bar"
"foxytunes.insert_before_element_id" "statusbar-display"
"foxytunes.insert_after_element_id" ""

hope this helps anyone else.
ill keep my ear out for any reason behind this.
